When you have a platform, how do you make decisions about whom to give that platform to? At a time when many works of video and film are well-produced, what other considerations do film programmers prioritize? This conversation focuses on the experiences and practices of some of today’s leading film curators.
Michelle Materre along with Ashley Clark, a writer and film programmer from London, now based in New York; Dessane Cassell, a Joint Curatorial Fellow with the Studio Museum in Harlem and the Museum of Modern Art, currently working in the curatorial department of the Studio Museum; and Jon-Sesrie Goff, a filmmaker, multi-media artist, and curator will be on the panel.
